    Description

    The Asphalt Jungle (MGM, 1950). Autographed Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). From the Collection of Frank Buxton, of which the sale's proceeds will benefit The San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
    Director John Huston took on the film noir genre and a classic heist story with this tale of a group of criminals who pull off the perfect jewel robbery. But due to bad luck and their own double-crossing, everything goes bad. This set of cards captures some of the film's best moments. While the overall appearance of this set is really nice, with five of the scene cards being very clean, the title card (signed by John Huston) has tears in the border, pinholes and pen marks in the center, creasing in the corners and smudging and general handling. The Marilyn Monroe card has two tears in it, one in each of the top and bottom borders. The closeup card of Sterling Hayden driving has a tear in the upper center border. Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
